Fine, if you like the smell of cooking.
The stay was spoiled for me by smell of cooking coming up from the restaurant in the basement. At times it was so strong as to be nauseating. Eliminate the smell and this would be a great guest house.

Loud and Stinking Room
We received an email a week or two before our stay telling us there was concert in the bar below. At this point it was then impossible to find somewhere else to stay (busiest Friday of the summer pretty much) this left us with a family room literally vibrating from the noise till 1am. Also the room stank of BO from the second the door opened. Pretty gross. We booked this room months ago, you could have told us much earlier that the ‘annual’ festival was happening that night, then we would have had more chance of finding somewhere else.
